    The device is designed in a way that allows sound to go out through the back of the ear cups, which usually have vents or perforations. This design provides very natural and accurate sound.
    The device is dustproof and water-resistant. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, but not being submerged into water.

    The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
    Impedance is the device’s electrical resistance to the current being pushed through it. The lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
    Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
    7.has a neodymium magnet
    Sony WH-XB900N
    Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
    The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
